Hi, I'm Megan!
I’m an American travel blogger focusing on the art, culture, and history of places around the world. I began to travel with a study abroad trip to Europe in 2006, and I was immediately hooked. In the intervening years, I began traveling a little more as money and time allowed. School put a dent in my finances and sanity, but I was still able to graduate with a dual BA in History and Art History in 2007, and then with a third BA in Archaeology in 2013. I completed grad school with an MA in Classical Archaeology in 2015.
My passions for travel, art, and history meet here.
The Curated Passport was created to combine my passions for travel, art, and history. With this blog I hope to share the way I see travel and the knowledge that can be gained from it. I try to make sure that my travel is as sustainable and ethical as possible. Museums and cultural sites are my favorite part of travelling anywhere, and I cannot wait to see the artwork, textiles, architecture, and history of each locale.
I often travel solo, but sometimes my incredible partner of five years joins me. I have two wonderful dogs that are like children to me.
As a white American, I realize that my view of other cultures, ethnicities, and lifestyles is seen through a very particular lens. I aim to be appreciative and understanding of the cultures I come into contact with. Travelling is a privilege and I am very lucky to have a lifestyle that offers it. I will try to embrace this truth as I embark on this blogging adventure.
